There goes the first amendment... again.

I know that we may have differing stances on Bush and the war, however I feel that freedom of speech is a serious issue we should all agree to support. Apparently, a high school student wrote a poem denouncing Bush, and the principal has gone to extreme measures against anyone who has supported this student or the reading group she was part of. (Thanks to rosequoll for bringing this to my attention.)

You can read the full article here. If that site is down (which I noticed it was earlier), wolfwings has provided a mirror, here. There's a variation of the same story available here, which also includes the poem. The poem itself is also available here.

If anyone's interested in writing to the governor of New Mexico about this, you can send him a message via his webpage here.
